Keep It Trimmed – by James Mashburn
NOTAM: Read Matthew 11:28-30. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my  yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is
easy and my burden is light.” (NIV) As you meditate on these verses, can you honestly say to yourself that Christ is carrying your burdens or are you carrying all of your own burdens? What happens to an airplane when it is not properly trimmed? It is more difficult to control and takes all your attention to manage it. When our life is centered on Christ, it is trimmed out. All of the hard work to keep us straight and level is no longer a struggle.
